Andrew Squires, chair of the Shaftsbury Veterans Committee, has released a personal memoir of his service in Afghanistan. Chasing The Taliban: One Soldier’s Memoir of Afghanistan tells the story of a small town boy who grows up to join the military, deploys to Afghanistan, and makes it home, bringing some baggage of war home with him.
Shaftsbury is proud of all of our veterans. Andrew stands out as one who served his country to full merit and still found time to serve his town. Andrew is organizing this year’s Norshaft Memorial Day Parade through Shaftsbury on May 28, 9 am. Please come out and show your support for all our soldiers, active, retired, and reserved, and to honor the memory of those who gave all.
